Right, I know about that. I'm not willing to go down the route towards DITA until I understand more about structured FM and Docbook, though. DocBook fits more closely with what I have.

It'll be in beta form in a couple of weeks. This might give the both the opportunity to work within structured FrameMaker AND to evaluate how DITA could fit into your workflow.

I have chosen to start with DocBook rather than DITA, just because I've worked in structured Frame with a DTD that was based on full DocBook. Question is, which version of DocBook should I use in order to get the most leverage from the resources included in Frame 7.1 (note the version)? Any advice? And yes, I *know* that DITA is the "way to go". I'm not even committing to do structured Frame in production; I just want to experiment. I have already written some production docs in unstructured FM 7.1, sticking like glue to my own standardized templates for *everything* (including equations!). My initial thought is to convert these unstructured docs to structured by crafting an EDD based on the unstructured templates.
